Listed today are the choral selections which our choir will sing for this Sunday’s liturgy – Feast of the Holy Famly 2018:
- What child is this
- Jesu dulcis memoria
- Panis angelicus (Casciolini)
- Ave Maria (Arcadelt)
- To Jesus Christ our Sovereign King
Recommended listening for the week is the phenomenal CD from the Hillier Ensemble, The Christmas Story. I’m playing this recording in the background again this week as I type this weekly update. One of my alltime favorite Christmas CDs. If you have an SACD player, getting the SACD version and listening to this recording in high resolution is quite a treat. The recording is performed by the Theatre of Voices, Ars Nova Copenhagen and directed by Paul Hillier.
“Hillier s Theatre of Voices operate at such a refined level of specialized technique that radically new expressive territory emerges. “–Gramophone
For further reflection, this recent post (linked here) by Father Z provides much to ponder on the Feast of the Holy Family.
